  • Announcements is a tool within every course created in AsULearn. Instructors post a message topic in the forum and the post will then be automatically emailed to all class members with a 15-minute delay to give you time to edit, you can check the option: Send forum post notifications with no editing-time delay. If time critical, QuickMail is considered to be speedier than Announcements.
    Note: In order for the message to be sent from Announcements, the AsULearn site must be available to students.

  • The Quickmail block is is added to each AsULearn course by default. Send email to the entire class, groups, or individual students. Quickmail is sent to each participant as a blind copy (bcc:), so other recipients are not notified of classmates who also received the email. 

    Quickmail Use Case: 5 students struggled on the first exam. Instructor sends one Quickmail to the 5 students with a generic subject of "Concerned about your progress" and a generic body expressing concern, reiterating office hours, available labs, study resources, etc. Each student will receive the message in the blind, and it will appear it came only to them.
    Note: The AsULearn site does not need to be available to students in order to send.



Students can see previous Announcements posts from the main course page. Quickmail messages are sent to students' email accounts or their AsULearn Messaging drawer (speech bubble icon, top right), but they can delete them from either location.


The Quickmail block is not available in the Student view.
